Lexmark X1270 scanner problem

Recently installed the all-in-one, and the printer works perfectly, but when I try to scan or copy I have an "AOIC.exe as encountered an error" message and the PC freezes. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, changing my AVG firewall settings, all with the same result. I am using Windows XP.

    I am unable to scan or copy with my LexMark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer. Previously I had a LexMark X83 but when I got a new Dell computer with Microsoft Vista (October 2007) the only thing I can do is print. I followed the Help directions but they didn't work either---even manually on the printer. I have re-installed the Lexmark program twice with no changes. What do I need to do to get my computer to scan and/or print?.

    I have Lexmark X1270 All in One printer. The printer and All In One Center worked fine on my Gateway running Vista, until one day the printer developed a communication problem. I uninstalled/reinstalled the driver. The driver install seems to end abruptly, like it did not complete the install process. Now the printer only prints but won't copy or scan and the All In One Center application does not execute properly.

    I have had an X1240 for the last several months and until last week had no issues. Then suddenly I started getting the "stopped responding" error and the scanner would have the light bar stopped in the middle, flashing. After trying to reinstall drivers with no results, I called tech support and they decided to send me a new printer, the X1270. I can print on both my laptop and desktop with the X1270 but I have the same scanner issue with my Vista laptop as what recently started with the X1240. I cannot figure out what the heck changed in the last week that suddenly makes it so I can't directly use the scanner with my laptop. Thankfully the photo gallery workaround gets the job done, but it's silly that I can't use Lexmark's AIO center when both Lexmark and Microsoft websites say there are no compatibility issues.

    My lexmark works fine as a printer, and used to work fine as a scanner, but when i had to install it in a diferent computer, the scanner just stop working, i taught it had to do with the installing the software, because i lost the cd, but i downloaded and still not working,
    and when i try to scanner something using scanner "button" that is on the lexmark, nothing happens!

    I have two lexmark X1290s and one X-75 All-In-One InkJet Printer. This problem hasn't happened in X-75,but seriously and continously bothered me either under Windows XP or Vista operation system,used or brand new X-1290 printer.product CD or downloaded updated driver cjr1200 for Vista. I uninstalled,/reinstalled driver numerously but in vain, the printer can't install and work properly.
    Your advice is urgent needed,and Lexmark should be accused for their bad product and manner.

The only way i can get my Lexmark X1270 to scan is to use the Windows Vista "Windows Photo gallery" to scan :

Start > All Programs > Windows photo Gallery > File > Import from Camera or scanner > select the scanner > save scanned file to your computer

This is the only way I have been able to use the scanner on my lexmark X1270,hope it works for you too.Be lucky.

If you have Windows Defender, you have to disactivate it and reinstall Lexmark software and re-activate Windows Defender

After downloading all the X1270 drivers for Vista - and my gods, there are alot of them - the darned thing refused to scan to Photoshop, my main program. Without your help, Fossybear, I'd still be stuck cursing and gnashing my teeth. Stupid thing. Gosh.

I have installed lexmark 1200 but cannot find it on Windows Vista

1. Remove the scanner software perfectly and Re-install it again according to the instruction.
Note: Must connect your scanner with PC before installing the software.

2. Very often if you enter the page before starting the scanner the scanner show problem.
So When you want to scan first start the scanner and then enter the page into the scanner.

3. You say now there is nothing. For a computer virus this also can occur. In this situation
first remove the virus and then follow the no. 1 & 2 step. Hope you will be able to work and do

Lexmark X1270

If you have the original installation disc, reinstall the software.
Windows probably trashed the Lexmark software.

If you hear the machine working when you try to copy or scan and the light source doesn't come on, you will need the lamp replaced; on some units and easy job, on others, you may end up saying 'to hell with it.'

If the scanner is clicking than it is a scanner issue. Make sure there is not a lock button on the machine. They sometimes have these for when the printer is being moved. As for the faxing software it would seem that that part didn't not get installed so if you can update it.
